51 degrees this morning, humidity 93%, rain most of night
At least the temperature is a little bit better, although now it is raining! Better than snow!
Started exercising yesterday morning again (very carefully).
Walk was 21:48 minutes, swim 13 minutes. As I said, I am starting off slow and building back up.
Pace was 1’38 seconds off of my goal. As I noted, I was taking it easy!
March 9 already. Time is flying by again. I guess that is better than “time dragging”, but I”m not sure.
I am reminded again that I need to make the most of each day. Wasting time isn’t necessarily bad, we all need a break, but I also want to experience each day, each hour, each second and not just let time go by and look back and wonder what happened.
I may look back and wonder what happened anyway, but at least I will know I tried to experience each moment!
Time “springs forward” this weekend. The time change is kind of a marker for me. I don’t like the “spring forward” (I love the “fall back” and the extra hour) but I like the fact that Spring is almost here.
I have a “Book Calendar” that I got 30 years ago, in 1989. It is a”perpetual calendar”, in that it is a calendar, but not marked by years, just the days and months.
Anyway, I have kept a record of each book I have read on the month and day block I read it and I noted the year I read it.
I may retire it this year, since many of the days are filling up with entries. On the other hand, if I can keep using it, maybe I need to just keep it up. I thought about retiring it after ten years and twenty years also.
I like to look at it occasionally and see where my mind was, or at least the type of books I was reading. There are definite trends, with some authors appearing over the thirty years.
I almost never read “self-help” books anymore. I think there is a certain time in your life when you read self-help books, at least there was in mine and other people I new.
I didn’t stray again from self help books because I was perfect, or didn’t need improvement, I think I stopped because I realized I wasn’t perfect and I didn’t need to worry about it!
That’s it for now, Saturday, March 9, 2019.
